Comments

  • ratbert2

    These pay estimates are grossly exaggerated

  • Jen Scott

    These are truly absurd numbers. I’m an actual Uber driver, and these figures made me howl with laughter!

  • Breanna

    Is 21 the actual age to be an uber driver or is that just an estimate ?

  • mark

    Is Uber paying for this story? They should be. It’s propaganda, I’m very sorry to say.

  • markjames1954

    I used to be a cost analyst for Ford Motor company and the Uber pay estimates are a fantasy, When one allocates all the associated costs of being an Uber driver the average hourly rate is somewhere between minimum wage and what one can make at Walmart ($10.00 per hour) If you work at Walmart you do not put a ridiculous amount of mileage on your vehicle. I put 28,000 miles on my Sonata over a 13 month period. Once your mileage goes over 100,000 your trade in value drops like a rock. Name brand dealers don’t want high mileage cars in their inventory they are to hard to sell and the profit margin sucks. So the dealer only gives you what they can get at auction and the car dealers that buy those type of cars are second tier which sells to a lower demographic. Often times the dealers are the ones that sell cars where their motto is buy here pay here. Of course one can drive the living shit out of the car but you run the risk of expensive repairs if the car breaks down and and your cash flow goes down the tubes.

  • Chris W

    How do you figure the average trip in Philly is $13.79? A fare that high is extremely rare. I have been driving for two years and the overwhelming majority of my trips are right around the minimum fare, meaning that I make less than $5 on most trips. Admittedly there is a high volume here, so I do more than two trips in an hour, but $13.79 per is grossly exaggerated. Where are you getting this figure? You are not that far off on the yearly totals though. While my trips are close to the minimum, I can do four in an hour so, it ends up being close to what two $13.79 trips per hour would be.

  • Hagar

    Im sorry to hear this

  • Sean Marsland

    Very interesting study. It would love to know how you estimated those numbers.

    To throw some information out there, I currently drive for Uber/Lyft in San Francisco/Bay Area and over this next year I will make over 100k. If you are interested in learning more check out

    Just a question is this before or after all expenses are paid

  • Sasikumar

    I have question that how much earn in chennai Tamilnadu, india that attaching my car in uber ?

  • It’s Me

    This is off by a LOOONNNG Shot for Charlotte, NC and presumably for the rest of the cities. I have seen as high as about $35/hr but realistically, you should expect around $14/hr. At 28 hours a week, that is $20,384 per year. Even at $20/hr, that is $29,120. It takes $28.14/hr to come up with the $40,965. There is just no way you’re going to consistently make that much here…it rarely surges significantly. At 2am and during some events and pro sports. These numbers for Charlotte are pulled out of thin air.
